Q:I would like to use this for my outdoor low voltage landscape lighting. Will this work?
by|Oct 28, 2023
1 Answer
Answer This Question

A:  Hi Laurie, Yes, this panel may provide enough power for your landscape lighting, but you will also need a charge controller and deep cycle storage battery. We offer complete solar kits of various sizes which include controllers and cables. You will need to find out how much power the lighting uses per day in Wh (Watt hours), then purchase a 12V deep cycle battery with enough capacity to power the lights. (Example: your lighting uses 100Wh daily - 100Wh÷12V=8.33Ah battery capacity required) If you choose a lead-acid type battery (less expensive), it will need to have double the required capacity, since lead-acid batteries should not be discharged any further than 50%. If you choose a LiFePO4 battery, you only need an extra 20% capacity, since this battery type can be discharged 80% safely. A single 100W panel can produce about 400Wh of power per sunny day, which is enough to charge a 30 to 40Ah battery.

      Q:Will I be able to use to run electric outlet through out my shed and lights as well?
      by|Jun 6, 2023

      Answer This Question

      A:  Generally it will depend on how you set things up and how many panels you have. I use 4 and charge batteries, the batteries in turn power an inverter for lights and one outlet. Check online for more detailed information on how to set solar for off grid use. More panels equal more current, faster charge. More batteries equals longer run time and the more you can power.

        A:  Hi Robert, yes, it is possible to use this panel to power electrical outlets and lighting. However, you would likely need many panels to produce enough power for all potential usage. A single 100W panel can power small loads, such as minimal LED lighting, mobile devices, fans, wifi routers, etc. Larger loads, such as heaters, TVs, Air Conditioners, Refrigerators, etc. will require multiple panels. How many depends entirely on your particular situation. Powering A/C devices also requires the use of an inverter. If you are looking to power an existing electrical panel, consulting with a licensed electrician is strongly recommended. This 100W solar panel is for off-grid use only. It cannot be connected to the power grid.

          A:  Yes you need to get a inverter rated at the watts you need

          by|Jun 7, 2023

            A:  Basically, no. This panel only generates about 88watts when the sun shinning directly and strongly on the panel.  And that energy is not at standard voltage, it’s much lower. If you use this panel to charge a small battery (“solar generator”) such as a EcoFlow River you can plug in various items including LED lights. It takes this small panel about 5 hours in good sun to fully charge a 300wh River battery.   I used this panel on top of my van to charge the EcoFlow River. A small 5 cup coffee pot will drain the battery down to 20%. If all you want is LED lights and low power electronics, this set up will work. All you need is the panel, a battery and maybe extension cords.

              Q:Is this compatible with the Bluetti ac300 power station
              by|Apr 8, 2023
              2 Answers
              Answer This Question

              A:  While not familiar with that power unit, solar panels just output the power, there are 12 volt, and with multiple panels in series or parallel you can either increase the voltage, or the amperage. That should accommodate what the power station needs.

              by|Apr 11, 2023

                A:  Hi Eric, I checked the user manual on your Bluetti AC300 and it does have a cable that supports MC4 connection for up to 2 inputs. Each MPPT input can accept more one panel each for further expansion. https://grapesolar.com/wp-content/uploads/GS-STAR-100W.pdf Thank you, Mike Biron

                  A bit more expensive than some of the cheaper made ones out there but this panel is a lot more durable and the customer service could not be beaten. Every question I had about the Grape Solar System starting from purchasing the 50 watt starter kit to adding on a 40 amp charge controller and two 100w panels and every step of the way Steve at customer service answered my email the day I wrote it to them.

                  I used two of these to replace two 60 Watt modules on my RV when I replaced the RV roof about two years ago. This is matched with a Morningstar 15 Amp PWM charge controller, two group 27 size 220 Amp-hr deep cycle batteries and a 1100 Watt sine wave inverter. The system works great. Note that the system does not produce the rated output. That is typical of solar modules. The peak output is about 120 Watts. But it produces plenty of energy for my needs for dry camping without a generator. I got the Z mounting brackets then decided that would not work on the RV. I needed a system that would allow me to remove the modules for maintenance. I cut some aluminum angle and made my own Z brackets that bolt together so I could remove the modules by removing easily accessible bolts. See photos.

                    Good price for 100 watt panels. Easy to install, but I wish I could have found reasonably priced mounts that would have allowed tilting. Time will tell how they hold up. So far they are working as expected.

                    I mounted 4 panels, in parallel, connected to my EPEver 40 amp MPPT 4210AN controller and 2-6 volt deep cycle batteries (in series) and I'm very happy with the results. I'm planning on 2 more panels along with 2 more batteries

                    I made 3 portable cases out of 6 grape solar 100 watt panels and hooked them up to two 40 amp pwm grape solar controllers. Then built a 6V 245 AH x2 12v in series then tied 3 in parallel totaling 735 AH 12v bank. Hooked up a 6,000 watt 12,000 watt max inverter. I put electronics in my truck tools box and hardwired a 30 amp RV RECEPTICLE BOX into inverter and mounted it to tool box and put the 6 6v batteries into an army trunk with vents custom drilled around the side top. And plugged in the panels and RV worked awesome. I will upload pictures if I can.

                    I was very pleased when I pulled the two 100 watt grape panels out of their boxes. They were well packed, no damage at all. I hooked them up to a Victron 75/15 controller and once the sun came out from behind the clouds they were producing 210 watts of power. I made them into a portable suitcase and as they were so inexpensive thought I would need to beef up the frames. That wasn't needed, they are well made units. Much better than I expected for $89. I have had them now for two weeks powering my RV from Bulk to Float each day.
